Connectiva Offers Closer Look at ConnectivaCloud Offering
Recently we gave you the scoop on Connectiva Systems’ new cloud offering, ConnectivaCloud. The service moves Connectiva’s entire analytics platform and application portfolio to the cloud, making all of Connetiva’s applications available on-demand. Now Connectiva Chief Product and Strategy Officer Anandan Jayarman is offering up some specifics about the offering. Read on for the scoop …
“Clients are usually forced to buy expensive licenses in order to get this type of service. They don’t want to do that anymore,” Jayarman said. The truth is, businesses probably never wanted to buy those expensive licenses. The difference is that they don’t have to anymore because of services such as ConnectivaCloud, which Jayarman said has been in development for the last nine months. “ConnectivaCloud is a very significant step for our company,” he noted. “It’s a big change. We now have everything on demand.”
Connectiva has about 45 customers throughout North America, Europe, India, Africa and the Middle East, and Jayarman made it clear ConnectivaCloud is an international offering aimed at telecom companies. And Connectiva certainly has employees in place to make the international cloud offering successful — the company has data centers in India, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Connectiva ‘s goal is to help its clients transition to the cloud, not abandon their in-house servers overnight, and as such is also offering a hybrid cloud model. Companies can start with a small amount of data in the cloud and build on as they grow their business, Jayarman said.
